think he's speaking directly to the report now that the u.s. and the libyans -- rather the u.s. and the iranians are trying to get together and try to have some kind of unilateral talks about what to do with their nuclear program. >> it's one of the sections that have been divided in six. let me direct you back to libya because that was such a hot button topic and it got talking points for a full week afterwards. do we expect the governor will seize on the opportunity to sort of change the conversation about that particular topic and try to get to the heart of the question that was asked, which is who denied security as opposed to arguing over when the words terror were uttered? >> reporter: you know, i think the romney campaign will acknowledge that. in fact, that wasn't a great moment for mitt romney in the last debate. i think he will use it as a jumping off point to talk about in the broader spectrum about the u.s. and how it's viewed globally and how terror right now is changing right now in the middle east. as you said, one of the discussions that will be talked about ton

," that iran and the u.s. have agreed in principle to one on one talks about iran's nuclear programs and the white house said late last night they had not agreed to talks but the u.s., the administration, is open to the idea. senator graham, let me start with you. what do you think of one-on-one talks with iran, and what do you make of the timing of this coming out two weeks before the election? >> well, i think the iranians are trying to take advantage of our election cycle, to continue to talk. as we talk with the iranians, whether it is bilaterally or unilateral unilaterally, they continue to enrich and the vice president and the president said we will do nothing without coordinating with israel. so we've talked with them in moscow and talk with them in baghdad and they continue to enrich, enrich, and, i think the time for talking is over. we should be demanding transparency and access to the program and they doubled the centrifuges, so, i think this is a ploy by the iranians and i hope we are talking to the israelis, and, as we continue to talk, they continue to enrich and they a
